CREPIM is one of the major European Laboratories for development and the approval of materials covered by fire regulations. CREPIM (i) develops, (ii)tests and (iii) certifies the fire performances of materials and assemblies for all concerned areas featuring the mass transportation sectors (railways, aircrafts and boats), in the building, electrical, and textile sectors. This activity is carried out in an Environmentally-Friendly way taking into account the end-of-life product.
Our organisation features four poles: (i) Development and (ii) testing pole, (iii) CE marking- Construction Product Regulation â€“and Certification pole and (iv) training pole, all focus on fire chemistry and testing . The whole team includes 20 people, featuring chemists for a large part (Msc, doctors and senior scientists)
The Development pole â€“ it is our original activity â€“ to support you in the development of FR formulas:
Focus on FR resins development, Thermoplastic or thermoset, mainly based on all technologies, featuring intumescence
The Testing pole provides you with a complete set of fire testing methods; to characterize the reaction to fire of you materials and assemblies. Ours teams are fully skilled, trained and recognized to deliver you a direct access to market:
The Training pole to upgrade you skill regarding
The CE marking- Construction Product Regulation â€“and Certification pole, to lead you on the CE marking route for you construction products
CREPIM: an organization focused on flexibility and technical knowledge

CREPIM set up a Fast compounding and pilot platform
Monday 15 february 2016
Fast compounding platform and pilot platform to produce short batches of FR tailor made compounds up to 500 kg
Crepim has been developing for years FR polymer based formulation to help our partner to upgrade the formulation according to market requirements. We have now a database of 80 formulations, which stands for a technical base to design quickly tailor made formulation for customers.
More and more our partners need to turn over their customers a demonstrator, which fits with the end use applications. That means not only a tailor made recipe and a fire test report, but also few kgs of FR compound to demonstrate the processability through real scale industrial tools - injection molding for most of our thermoplastic based development
This is the hard point because the supplier market is not really flexible to delivers low amounts of compounded polymers. And this lack of solution can compromise the demonstration pilot phase, which secures the couple product & process
Crepim has decided to tackle this problematic by completing our offer. Up to know, Crepim uses a fast compounding platform with low scale compounding machineries to develop proactively the FR compound. The return ticket between development and testing has always been a success guarantee within short time laps
Our offer figures now two levels
1: A« fast screening compounding » plateform to develop Taylor made FR compounds.
· Formulation adjustments and optimization.
o PP, PC, PA 6 & 6 6....
o PC VO reach compliant
o PP M2 halogen free
o PU V0 halogen free
o ABS/PC, PET…
· Plastic materials compatibility.
· New additives and fillers for plastics incorporation.
· Fillers dispersion studies.
Also note that Crepim is in deeply connected to EFRA and PINFA and we propose only mature, worldwide sourced and REACH compliant Fire retardant
2: Pilot platform with the ability to produce short batches of special compounds up to 500 kg to accelerate the scale up & industrialization,
· Securing of the industrialization process with low marginal cost added
· Proactive service and quick delivering of the compound
This offer aims to give you more versatility in your product development by controlling the downstream phase. By investigation process ability of deliver the right material with the right properties
Feel free to use our polymeric expertise for accelerating you development or for revitalizing you frozen projects. Our skills feature a full range of thermoplastic application
CREPIM invests for environment.
Thursday 23 july 2015
In order to carry on our growth while respecting the environment, CREPIM has just invested in a brand new smoke washing apparatus to clear up all our exhaust smoke. The system features a counter flow washing tour + a second tour to clean out all potential odors. The installation is now planned for November 2015. It is the guarantee for our customers that we provide them with results within the strong respect of environment and clean exhaust emission. It is also aligned with willingness to develop low smoke and low toxic polymers in case of fire.
